Is there a type of celandine with leaf markings like those of a cyclamen or is it something else?

    There is an asarum, they are more pointed though like autumn ones.
    You mean like coum with rounded leaves though?

    Celandine Brazen Hussey has dark leaves ... the more sunny the spot the darker the leaves ... could that be it?

    It's not brazen hussey Dove. It's lovely though,isn't it? The leaves are just like a pointy cyclamen only soft and shiny. I can't post a picture as they were in my hand with a fistful of ordinary celandine but there's probably some more dotted about. I have industrial quantities of celandine this year!
    Thanks for the link ruby, I'll browse it later😊

    I do like them but they scare the bejesus out of me in case they reach invasion proportions while my back is turned.

    The paragraph and third photo in the link shows a form of pattern in Ficaria verna.

    @Rubytoo this looks like the leaves. I found it in your link. I hope I haven't killed something interesting!

    I didn't notice any flowers though. I like them. Hope I find another!

    Sods law will say no, but as it is Celandine I am sure he will make an exception. :)
